Let us preface this post with the following quote from a person that we hold close to our hearts and it begins,
“[How do I do it?] Well, it’s always a mystery, because you don’t know why you get depleted or recharged. But this much I know. I do not allow myself to be overcome by hopelessness, no matter how tough the situation. I believe that if you just do your little bit without thinking of the bigness of what you stand against, if you turn to the enlargement of your own capacities, just that itself creates new potential. And I’ve learned from the Bhagavad-Gita and other teachings of our culture to detach myself from the results of what I do, because those are not in my hands. The context is not in your control, but your commitment is yours to make, and you can make the deepest commitment with a total detachment about where it will take you. You want it to lead to a better world, and you shape your actions and take full responsibility for them, but then you have detachment. And that combination of deep passion and deep detachment allows me to take on the next challenge, because I don’t cripple myself, I don’t tie myself in knots. I function like a free being. I think getting that freedom is a social duty because I think we owe it to each not to burden each other with prescription and demands. I think what we owe each other is a celebration of life and to replace fear and hopelessness with fearlessness and joy.”

When we posted our comment about Chick Fil-A we weren’t expecting SFWeekly blogs.sfweekly.com/…/how_to_get_free_waffles_at_hot.php and SF Eater http://sf.eater.com/archives/2012/08/02/hot_sauce_panko_vs_chickfila.php to run it. Yes, the sandwich was developed in response to their stance on homophobia and throwing their dollar profits around to deny couples and individuals a basic right. We did not mention that this sandwich was in response to their callous and parochial attitude but thank goodness it was picked up.
As with our food we are fearless and expect some flak for it…yes folks it has come and will come.
We stand for equality, inclusion not exclusion, and freedom to choose without incumbencies. By the way, what is there to be afraid of?
Fight the good fight.
NOW LETS KISS!
(Yes, there is deep tongue involve and make it a very very wet one as they deserve it…Go Chick fil-A).
